Back to peace: reconciliation and retribution in the postwar period
University of Notre Dame Press, 2007 - Literary Criticism - 312 pages
Scholars have rarely studied a society's return to peace as a cultural category, as a formative experience common to many lives at any time in history. This collection of original essays by historians and literary critics explores the complex and difficult question of how a culture does, in fact, "return to peace" after a war. Combining analyses of both literary texts and historical sources, the contributors focus on the cultural, political, and personal implications of returning to peace. Book jacket.
